think if president obama had inherited bill clinton's economy, a surplus. that wasn't the case. so i think the president needs to remind america where we were and where we have been and the accomplishments that we've made. as far as mitt romney is concerned, romney can go after president obama all he wants tonight. he's got some serious repair work to do after the 47% comment, because that was a real snapshot as to who he is. plus, his private sector experience has got a checkered past. he's an outsource iceoutsourcer. he's a guy who's gone to the bottom line who hasn't been good to middle class families. he can't put a number on how many jobs he's actually created. but we hear these testimonials more and more all the time because of the hardship the middle class has gone through because of the economic model he presented in the private sector. that is a huge target for the president tonight, and i think he'll exploit it. >> steve schmidt, from a republican perspective, looking at that plus 19 number that president obama has got on handling issue of the middle class, how does mitt ro
, the man who served as secretary for bill clinton. robert reich. and grover norquist, president of americans for tax reform. we're coming right back. >>> welcome back. something that very possibly could come up tonight is governor romney floating the idea of capping tax deductions at $17,000. would that effectively be a tax increase? and would it work to bring down the deficit? with us now robert reich who served as labor secretary under bill clinton and grover nor qui quist. >> he's made that commitment as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class familie
a statement from the national security council. hillary clinton spoke to the turkish foreign minister and said the u.s. will support turkey in this. all are condemning syria and holding syria to account. this as also more trouble for the administration with benghazi. the hill is now asking for answers. they want a hearing next week. hillary clinton said today that no one wants to know more than she and the president what happened in benghazi, but we've confirmed that the fbi has not been able to get on the ground because of continuing security concerns, and at this point, more documents, secret and sensitive documents like this one, are still at large in that site being secured only by libyans at the scene and not well indeed. >> and on top of that there were demonstrators in the streets of tehran today because the currency there has collapsed. but we remind everybody that tonight's debate is at least supposed to be about domestic and economic items. andrea mitchell, part of our team in denver. we'll talk to you later tonight. >>> even given the clear and distinct choice between these two cand
clinton promised a full and open investigation into the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, three weeks ago. four americans, you'll recall, were killed, including ambassador chris stevens. there are a lot of questions about what happened. margaret brennan has been following this story and she's at the state department tonight. margaret? >> reporter: good evening, scott. the secretary of state reacted to pressure from the public, the press, and the house oversight committee to address the controversy around the administration's response to that attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. were there multiple requests for increased security in tripoli and benghazi and can you address whether washington or your office rejected those requests? >> well, let me start by cautioning everyone against seizing on any single statement or piece of information to draw a final conclusion. over the course of this review there will naturally be a number of statements made, some of which will be borne out and some of which will not. >> reporter: clinton and her aides have consistently po
something very special from secretary of state hillary clinton. you're watching "early today." >>> here are some of your top headlines this morning. 4 people have died and 26 have gotten sick across five states after a meningitis outbreak. the cause appears to be contaminated steroid injections given to those with severe back pain. a massachusetts pharmacy believed to be the source of the outbreak has suspended operations, recalling hundreds of doses. >>> in iran, amateur video shows anti-government protests over the nation's collapsing currency. riot police clashed with demonstrators. iranian currency has lost 40% of its value in a week. >>> health officials warn dozen of weight loss and immune system supplements are being illegally labeled and lack any real scientific evidence. one out of five products bought in stores or online claim to prevent or cure deadly diseases. >>> and remember this? the late crocodile hunter steve irwin clutching his baby boy as he went face to face with predators? well, that baby boy is now 8 years old. robert irwin fed a crock himself for the very first ti
. at the state department margaret brennan reports secretary clinton promises a full accounting. >> reporter: were there requests for increase in security in been gazay and did your office reject those requests? >> let me start by cautioning everyone against seizing on any single statement or piece of information to draw a final conclusion. over the course of this review there will naturally be a number of statements made, some of it -- some of which will be borne out and some of which will not. >> reporter: clinton and her aides have consistently pointed to intelligence reports that indicated there was no threat to the u.s. mission, and that it was intelligence agencies that initially said the attack was sparked by a spontaneous demonstration. >> i am aware too that many people are eager for answers. so am i, margaret and no one wants the answers more than we do here at the department. >> reporter: senior aides are handing over emails and paper work to congressional investigators who want to know who knew about the security situation in benghazi. the state department's own five person revie
to see you. neil: how did it good? >> best performance since bill clinton in 1992. mitt romney strategically did everything he needed to do, and the democrats know that. if you look at the democratic spin, people walking around tonight, they are downcast. neil: you know -- >> there are at many of them. they don't have as much to say. neil: just peek around the audience, the number of democrats, seeing the ratio like 8-to-1 republicans. that's just me. you're seeing congressman chaffetz interviewed, but what do you say to that? >> you can't be a great communicator unless you have great things to communicate. president obama faltered tonight. he was halting. he was on the defensive. he couldn't wait to get off the stage. there's a reason for that. neil: that's your opinion. >> well, no, you could observe the fact he got off the stage. neil: i heard a lot, comments to jim lehrer, about you took my five seconds. >> there's a reason president obama struggled tonight. he struggled the last four years. you can't make a great defense of a record that's not been great. you can't communi
class believes. the things that president clinton used, balanced approach. opportunity and, i thought that governor romney really didn't do anything to dissuade the general public from the view that he would like to go back to the days of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy and hope that this time, instead of growing deficits, and growing unemployment, that it grows jobs. so governor romney really needed a game changer tonight. i hate to say this but i find myself agreeing with chris christie. governor romney really needed to turn the world upside down. he really need ad game changer tonight. i think you would be sore pressed to find that magic moment that was the game-changer tonight. and, so, that was my view in watching it anyway. i also thought the president did a very good job finally nailing governor romney down to admitting he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program. i thought the president pushed back on that very effectively, when he said, hey, if you're 55 you might want to listen to this. i'm still not sure exactly what governor romney was saying about his promise o
reportedly clashed with demonstrators and fired gas to disperse it. in washington, hillary clinton said the iranian government only has itself to blame for its economic problems. >> i think the iranian government deserves responsibility for what is going on inside iran. and that is who should be held accountable. i think they have made their own government decisions, having nothing to do with the sanctions that have had an impact on the economic conditions inside the country, and of course, the sanctions have had an impact as well, but those could be remedied in short order if the iranian government were willing to work with the p5 plus 1 and the rest of the international committee and a sincere manner. >> clinton is that going for a full investigation for alleged security lapses that led to the killing of four americans at the was consulate in benghazi, libya last month. house republicans have set a hearing for next week following kent state department rebuffed pleas from u.s. officials in libya for more secured before the attack. on wednesday, hillary clinton about a perot pro. >> men
. he couldn't put the entire picture together. he kept going back to go back to lincoln and clinton. the fact is when clinton was president the economy was very different. you can't say the same policies that worked under clinton will work when we had over 8% unemployment for 43 months straight. that is where romney showed his strength. stuart: let me draw your attention to the stock market. in the last couple minutes we have seen the dow go straight up. we are now up 96 points getting close to 13-6 on the dow industrials. top of the hour we got the 5% drop in factory orders. that suggests a weakening economy. we got a 3.36% rate on 30 year fixed rate mortgages at an all-time low. maybe that suggests a lot of money printing by the fed and a weak economy. i don't have another explanation why the dow is up 95 except that. lousy factory orders means ben bernanke will print bigger. >> no bad news out of europe. everyone is focused on europe and not what is going on in the economy domestically. a lot of schizophrenic information. great manufacturing numbers early in the weekend bad numbe
of this, the way that obama had a bounce coming out of the convention, in charlotte, with bill clinton's famous speech? >> he is looking for a comeback moment. what happens next is going to be important. he's going to be giving a speech on foreign policy. he'll be asked about this in interviews in the coming days. if he can build on this, yes. he will start to close the gap. the romney campaign, just happened just at the right moment for them to capitalize on something. knowing you have five weeks left. there's a couple of turns left. >> the next presidential debate, tuesday, october 16th. >> thanks, rick. >> thank you, guys. >>> again, we extend our thanks to rick klein for that. we'll have much more from the abc political team coming up in a little while on "good morning america." >>> now, turning overseas to breaking news from along the border between turkey and syria. for a second-straight day, turkish artillery has opened fire on syria's targets. that's in retaliation for the syrian shelling of a turkish town yesterday. turkey says the shelling was a warning, not a declaration of
going, i can't believe what i'm seeing? bill clinton's thinking, okay, i saved his convention. do i have to -- i mean, you know bill clinton, along with every other democrat, was pulling his hair out last night. >> oh, yeah. >> so many softballs lobbed barack obama's way that he just didn't take a swing at. >> i think that when you look at those debates four years ago, all obama had to do was to show up and to be calm. they were -- we were in the midst of an economic panic. and he showed, you know, a very calm and steady demeanor which was reassuring. but he's never actually had to make a case in a debate. and he couldn't make a case last night. he couldn't even make a case for his own stimulus program. it was astonishing. >> this was each candidate's best and worst on display because the president -- i think a lot of people agree -- debates aren't his strong point and the stylistic part of it is difficult. with mitt romney, even during the primary, even though the competition was clownlike, he always stepped up and was aggressive and was impressive. >> that's right. this shouldn't come
ohio, undecided. what did you think of the debate and why are you undecided? caller: bill clinton and i voted for george bush then i voted for obama. last night romney looked like a leader. i'm not for big government. i was excited with the national health-care plan until i started talking to some friends and relatives of mine that work in the health-care industry that were expressing concern. i have an aunt that works in the health-care industry and working with the disabled. she says it will be a disaster. she knows people personally and companies that will lose the medicare to the national health care system. they will not be able to accept medicare. that ownsme on goauncles some businesses. i don't consider them wealthy. they will be hit hard through this, if obama gets his tax increases through. host: are you leaning towards mitt romney at this point? caller: it would be hard to persuade me. that rahm it appears to be a leader. mitt romney has worked across the lines -- mitt romney appears to be a leader. i believe he will look down and will cut you off and that is what he has done
should go back to the rates we had when bill clinton was president when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus, and created a whole bunch of millionaires to boot. this is important because by doing that we can not only reduce the deficit, we can not only encourage job growth through small business, but we are also able to make the necessary changes in education and energy. we do have a difference when it comes to small businesses. under my plan, 98% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says, those top 3%, they would be burdened. under romney's version, donald trump is a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as a small anything, but that's how you define small business. that kind of approach i do not believe will grow our economy. the only way to pay for it without burdening the middle class or blowing up our budget is to make drastic cuts in things like education, making sure that we are continuing to invest in basic science and research, all the things helping america to grow. i think that woul
really talked about how much fun bill clinton made politics. and the fact is politics can be enormous fun. mitt romney had fun tonight. the president did not have fun. >> rose: and passion. katty kay, can you hear me. she's not ready. so let me throw this open. so where does this campaign go now. will there be a ridged analysis of who said what and thefore finding fault and perhaps finding discrepancies in what people said. anybody make any factual mistakes. >> well, i think that a lot of the things that president obama didn't do tonight will now be things his campaign will try to litigate. there are things governor romney, i don't think falsehood so much as there's some more meat on the bones. they've been able for a long time to portray, to characterize governor romney's policies in any way they wanted to because he was not saying anything specific about his policies. he's now said a bunch of things, and they will now look at those things for inconsistencies and look at those things where they will be able to say well sate a second, you said x that's inconsistent with y. they will go a
of people were saying the president should have taken the bill clinton strategy and really laid out very carefully in a meticulous way the holes in the romney strategy. he tried to do that. bill clinton does it in a warm and empathetic way. and president obama did a little bit of that but in this very disengaged law/professor-type of approach. some people think it is harder for the president to be nasty, be tough because then he comes across as an angry black man who is going to scare people. i don't know, but for whatever reason it -- he just did not push back. he did not engage. >> i think also the lack of audience noise was an issue and the way the debate was staged. it added to this lack of energy. remember, this is a year when most people watching debates on television or getting their news are used to the kind of roar of the crowd. they used to tweet, they are used to crowd engagement. to have two people quiet ligating on the stage in a professorial way is quite alien for most american people today. >> there's that same perception that it is reality, even liberal pundits were criti
and hillary clinton, every third night people said he has to be more aggressive, he has to come after her. it was the same kind of critique of his performance. and it did get more pointed over time, but b, the number one value that the obama team sees as their candidates' chief virtue is his personal likability and they will do nothing to risk that. so this was an intentional strategy -- >> do you think obama gained people tonight? >> i don't know. >> this is about winning. this is a huge election. you can't go out there and say. they want the jugular on this guy. >> i know. but they have -- all i'm saying. i'm channelling them for a moment. i tend to agree more with you. but they have said from the beginning we know the liberals want the jugular but we will not give it to to you. the reason people like this man is because he's not the kind of person who ever goes to the jugular. >> so he left the impression tonight that he's really going to fight when it comes to social security? >> i didn't think so. >> i do think one of the remarkable things about tonight is the fact that the president
and recommendations to secretary clinton within 60 days of its first meeting, unless the chair determines a need for additional time. in simple terms, no time limit. do not expect anything before the election. now more than three weeks after the attack, the consulate in benghazi is still not secure. according to a "washington post" reporter on the ground in benghazi, sensitive documents, including the personnel files and records outlining efforts to rounds up loose weapons in libya can be found in plain sight. a republican on the house government oversight committee is criticizing the administration's state of of reliance on the f.b.i. investigation given agents are not in benghazi. >> the area is too dangerous for the f.b.i., but it wasn't dangerous enough for this administration to increase security. i'd like to ask that and i plan on doing it next week. >> fox news has confirmed the state department has yet to provide documents, including e-mails and other communications about security to republican senators corker, isakson, and the house intelligence committee. guys, back to you. >> steve: t
earlier who said the shelling has now stopped. secretary of state hillary clinton has called this a very, very dangerous situation. the fear is that it could escalate into a military conflict between turkey and syria. that would be massively destabilizing for the middle east and could even draw in the u.s. turkey is a nato ally. however this morning we've also heard of the senior adviser to the turkish prime minister, who seemed to quell those fears saying turkey has no intention of going to war with syria but that turkey is capable of defending its borders and will retaliate when necessary. >> holly williams, thank you so much. clarissa ward is with us now, reporting on the uprising in syria for more than a year. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what is the reaction on the part of the people supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected? >> i think there's a sense now not just of disappointment, but actually of real bitterness. they

, jim. this is a brooklyn boo-yah to you. >> i'll be there this weekend. i love clinton hill. it's really coming back. they're snapping up the places there. you can't find anything. >> caller: we love you, jim. you do so much for us. >> thank you. >> caller: i want to know if i'm diversified. my first stock is target, second is sirius xm, third is clorox, clx. fourth is disney, dis, and last is johnson & johnson, jnj. >> all right. let me go to work. sirius, the classic final station. 26, it can't be beaten. sirius is entertainment. disney -- let's call it radio. that would conflict with disney. that's true entertainment. johnson & johnson, pharma. target one of the best retailers in the world. and clorox -- too much like johnson & johnson. this is tough. we are going to get rid of clorox and bring a little industrial in there. why don't we put in, yes, i don't mind saying it, ge, since it's one of the biggest positions in -- or you can do 3m. which made a really good executive decision today that i liked very much about not overpaying for avery dennison. let's go to sandy in ohi
the american people the truth. and then proceed to walk through as clinton would have done the mathematics to prove it. i don't think romney would have been smart enough to figure out how to get out of that hit, but obama ignored that opportunity and i think that's a mistake. joan, you're correct. he will everywhere he goes, he will save the day and correct what he didn't do last night, but 58 million people will not be able to be contacted in time for him to make that correction. >> well, joan, last night romney made another surprising state on his health care plan this time. let's take a look at the latest variation on a theme which is i'm not as bad as i am. let's watch it. >> let's get the governor explain what you would do it obama care is repealed. how would you replace it? >> actually, it's a lengthy description but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. number two, young people are able to stay on their family plan. >> well, there's a lie. keep it simple. i reserve my right to use it once in a wile. his own guy came out and said it's not in there. talking po
